Note to editors
The Sports Governance Academy (SGA) is the governance support hub for the sports and physical activity sector.
Our goal is to improve the standard of governance in sports organisations across the UK by supporting, developing and connecting the people who work with and have an interest in governance in sport.
The SGA is delivered by The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland in partnership with Sport England, UK Sport, sportscotland, Sport Wales and Sport Northern Ireland.
Through this relationship, the Sports Councils have come together with the recognised experts in governance to help everyone leading, working and volunteering in sport organisations to develop their governance capabilities and to achieve their goals through establishing a framework for effective and fair decision making.
Together we champion good governance because we are passionate about the role it plays in enabling the success of individual organisations and the sector as a whole.
